Checkered Flag Fan Club to Honor Evergreen’s Regular Division Champions
Even though Evergreen Raceway Park in St. Johns, PA closed it’s doors in July, just half way through the 2014 racing season, the Checkered Flag Fan Club will honor Evergreen’s mid season champions at their annual awards banquet on Saturday, December 6th at the Kutztown Fire Hall in Kutztown, PA. Those honored will be the four core divisions that competed in the most shows this season.
 
Those who led the points in the Modified, Late Model, Street Stock, Factory Stock and Four Cylinder divisions when the track closed will be honored as the Evergreen champions at the affair, as long as they are a member of the club prior to the banquet. Membership is only $15, and many racers and their families across the tri state area are already members of the organization.
 
The Checkered Flag Fan Club was founded in 1951, has over 2000 members, with some very popular racers, like Kyle Petty, Bill Elliott, A.J. Foyt, Nigel Mansell, the Andretti family. The club offers financial assistance to drivers who are club members that may suffer an injury. The club provides them with assistance during their recovery.
 
“It’s great to see that the club is doing this for the racers who led the points in the track’s main division following the tracks last show in July”, noted Gene Ostrowski, who was Evergreen’s Announcer and PR Representative.
 
“On behalf of the speedway, a very special thanks goes out to the Checkered Flag Fan Club. It’s a great club that does many great things for the racers and their families. After all, they’ve been doing this for over 50 years.”
 
The drivers and divisions that will be honored at the banquet are Todd Baer of New Tripoli, PA (Modified), Steve Shultz of Drums, PA (Late Model), Randy Schlenker of Whitehall, PA (Street Stock), Matt Mattern, Jr. of Mountaintop, PA (Factory Stock) and Heather Fennell of Hawley, PA (Four Cylinder).

Brian DeFebo Repeats in Modifieds at Evergreen Raceway Park
For the second straight time, Berwick’s Brian DeFebo drove around the outside of his competition before driving off with the Modified main event win Friday at Evergreen Raceway Park. The win marks DeFebo’s 56th overall win in the division at the track. In his first start in the Street Stock division this season, Steve Shultz of Drums held off Randy Schlenker to score the victory and in a Four Cylinder race that was nothing short of a demo derby, Bob Azarowicz of Tunkhannock steered clear of trouble to notch his second straight win of the year. Mitch Dowd of Pottstown led the INEX Legends feature from flag to flag to score his second win of the season in three starts. Full Story
 
Evergreen Raceway Park Planning to Bring Back “True” Enduro Racing
Bone stock and badass are just a few words that describe the Enduros of yesteryear at Evergreen Raceway Park. Back in the mid 2000s, the NEETS Holiday Stock Car Series received a tremendous amount of support from Enduro maniacs and their fans, where car counts soared with nearly 100 each in the Four Cylinder and 6/8-Cylinder divisions respectively. The economy began to drop, the price of scrap went up and the last page of the Enduro novel showed Enduro cars becoming racecars. The good old days of Enduro racing showcasing huge car counts may be a thing of the past, but not necessarily, as Evergreen Raceway Park, with the help of popular Enduro racer Steve Tito, plan to go back to those roots for the 2015 racing season.
    For now and with a few minor rule modifications that will be available on the track website soon, the Enduros will basically remain the same as they have been for the last few seasons. Of course drivers will never know if the track will be wet or dry, with obstacles or without, or whether or not they will have to make left hand turns or possibly right. Full Story
 
 
Evergreen Raceway Park Brings Back Late Models; Creates “Full Fendered Fridays”
 It’s been a month since the Late Model division has been on the card of events at Evergreen Raceway Park. Considered to be a fan favorite, the division’s car counts have steadily declined in the last few years, not just at Evergreen, but also elsewhere. However, the staff and select racers at Evergreen have not lost faith in the division and have rally together to help bring the class back and in turn full fendered Friday night racing was born. Not only will the Late Models be back on the schedule for those select nights of competition, but they will also be the headlining division, and grandstand admission for the night of August 1st has been reduced to only $5!

Brian DeFebo Clicks Off First Win of the Year at Evergreen Raceway Park
With eight different drivers taking Modified victories in nine main events ran so far this season at Evergreen Raceway Park, a new Modified winner was bound to emerge Friday evening. Emerge he did, in dominating fashion, Brian DeFebo of Berwick scored his first win of the season and 55th overall of his Modified career at the track. Randy Schlenker of Whitehall hasn’t finished worse than second in the last six weeks of Street Stock competition. That hasn’t changed yet; as Schlenker held off Kevin Higgins to notch his sixth win of the season. In a wild and caution plagued Four Cylinder feature, Bob Azarowicz of Tunkhannock bested his competition to score his first career victory and Tom Cassagrande of Drums claimed his fourth Pure Stock win of the year. Tony Hilliard of Hazleton finshed fifth in the Pure Stock race, which earned him the Enduro victory. Vinny Troia of Pemberton nearly missed the show because of traffic to the track, but it didn’t slow him on the speedway, as he dominated the INEX Legends main to notch his first win at the track.
